    I recently purchased some Clarks brogues while travelling overseas. I only noticed that the left (foot) shoe has slanting shoelaces after tying it using straight lace method.

    Any help would be appreciated in regards to the cause of it.

    Probably the shoe or foot shape between the left and right does not match. That's not rare.

    Don't straight-lace them and it won't be very noticeable.

    I have a couple pairs of shoes that do this...never quite sure if it is a construction issue (maybe they were seconds because the sides were attached a little off) or if it is because of the shape of my foot.
